Parish Christmas Carol Service:

We invite you to join us for our Parish Carol Service on Wednesday 12th December at 7.30pm. This special event includes our Wonderful 3 Parish Choirs and also the involvement of our local Schools Choirs. They are all collaborating together to make this a very special event in the lead up to Christmas. In time-honoured tradition Parishioners are invited to bring along a gift for those in need which will be distributed through St Vincent De Paul. We look forward to seeing you. Admission is free and all are welcome!

Christmas Book of Remembrance:

Envelopes are now available at the back of the Church for the Christmas List . Names of our loved ones who have gone before us may be written in a special book which will be placed on display upon the Altar steps throughout the 12 days of Christmas.
